REPORT OF THE TOWN MANAGER

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and the citizens of the Town of
Seabrook.

My tenure as your Town Manager commenced on May 21, 2003. The
journey to date has been both interesting and instructive.
Interesting because of the unique opportunities that are associated
with each municipality, in this case Seabrook, and instructive
because of the interaction that occurs of necessity between the
citizens, employees and officials in resolving those unique problems
and opportunities.

Seabrook is not unlike other municipalities in New Hampshire in
several respects. Our problems are centered on taxes, property
assessments, unions and productivity. Our unique problems are
centered on water, nuclear power, beaches, harbors, dunes, marshes,
commercial fishing and development. All of these areas deserve and
require constant attention and action to maintain balance and
bearable conditions, so that individual citizens can maintain their
existence in harmony with their environment and balanced with their
needs .

Property taxes have been a priority during the past year. The sharp
increase in the tax rate caused by the need to address our water
supply problems has been addressed. The proposed budget for 2004 is
$500,000 less than the previous year. The impact of the tax rate is
marked for substantial reduction to pre-2003 levels through the use
of available funds and borrowing for long-term projects, coupled with
the removal of previous funding for the large water projects that
